The [[chi].sub.ac] signal, [[chi].sub.ac,0], of the mixture before the formation of immunocomplex of VEGF-magnetic-nanoparticles was recorded using a magnetic immunoassay analyzer (XacPro-S, MagQu).
Singulation of capture beads within microwells permits buildup of fluorescent product from an enzyme label, so that signal from a single immunocomplex can be readily detected with a CCD camera.
To capture the immunocomplex, we added 50 [micro]L of protein agarose A, pelleted the beads, and washed twice with buffer 1.
During incubation, the anti-histone antibody bound to histone-competent apoptotic nucleosomes and linked the immunocomplex to the streptavidin-coated plates via its biotinylation.
The scattering signals of C3, anti-C3, and the antiC3-C3 immunocomplex systems were weak.
All basic operations, including the antigen-antibody reaction, immunocomplex capture, and washing, were carried out automatically.
Most commercially available immunological methods for the detection of bacteria are based on conventional sandwich immunoassays, which involve the formation of an immunocomplex with an immobilized antibody, the target bacteria, a second labeled antibody, and the separation of free and bound antibody fractions by washing steps.

The biotinylated antibody against cTnT in the cTnT-containing immunocomplex was quantified by peroxidase-labeled streptavidin and a chemiluminescent substrate, according to the manufacturer's recommended conditions (Pierce Biotechnology).
When the [Eu.sup.3+]-labeled antibody and the Cy5-labeled albumin are specifically combined, the close proximity between the two labels in the immunocomplex allows energy transfer to take place between the pulse-excited europium chelate and the acceptor Cy5.
